Goodbye Autumn / Hello Winter

With the fallen leaves we lose the autumn colour, bare trees signal the arrival of the next season, winter…

With snow already sitting on the hills and more to follow over the coming weeks it’s time to start thinking about those Outdoor Clothing spots!

Queenstown is a majestic place year round but winter really delivers the goods when it comes to spectacular alpine vistas, clear blue skies, clear alpine lakes and snow capped peaks. The town is abuzz and with a definite chill in the air we are looking forward to our next project showcasing this wonderful region.

GoPro USA Collaborates with MAP Productions to release the New GoPro HERO3 HD Camera to the World!

After months of secrecy we can now reveal that we’ve had an exciting few months working closely with the GoPro Team from San Francisco. We scouted and shot across the length of New Zealand as well as in magestic Vava’u Tonga and Tahiti. Working with the GoPro Team and their roster of World Class Athletes was an absolute pleasure! The brief was EPIC and that’s what we delivered! If it’s action combined with pristine locations that you’re looking for then we’re waiting for you call!

Goat’s Recent Travels…….

Having just returned home from an eight week stint of international work in both Indonesia and Australia followed by a two week job in Auckland I can say that I’m looking forward to a few weeks at home with the girls and some skiing in the not to distant future! The Indonesian trip involved a 100 year anniversary tvc campaign for Sampoerna’s Dji Sam Soe Cigarettes, this epic campaign spanned 100 years of Indonesia’s History, Directed by Australian Director / DP Mark Toia and Produced by Plush Pictures in Jakarta. The Australian trip involved shooting the new Launch and Safety tvc’s for the new 2012 Holden Colorado, shooting west of Brisbane over three days again with Australian Director / DP Mark Toia, with the job being Produced by Zoom Film and Television in Brisbane. Lastly, the two weeks just spent in Auckland involved shooting a large McDonald’s Olympic campaign for Australia and New Zealand with Auckland based Director Adam Stevens, the job was Produced by Auckland based company Robbers Dog Films.

Indonesian Chocolate

Having just finished a nice job for Indonesian Chocolate Giant SilverQueen with the lovely team from Interact Carlson, Jakarta. The spot was Directed by Danish Director Bo Krabbe and Produced by our friends at Seven Sunday Films also in Jakarta. It was a great little shoot that went well, great weather, great crew and a fun group of kids who really enjoyed the shoot. The job was nicely shot by DP James Cowley using the Arri Alexa, Canon 5DMkii and an iPhone 4s using a Canon EF Mount and L Series Lenses! Locations were all based here in Queenstown New Zealand, with Talent from various Auckland Agencies. Take a look at the Agency Cut that went to air in Indonesia last week via the Show Reel section of our website.
